So the NHL season came to an end this week with the Chicago Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup beating the Boston Bruins in Game 6, 3 – 2. It was one of the best comebacks I’ve ever seen in any type of sporting event. The Blackhawks scored two (2) goals very late in the 3rd period to win the game and the Stanley Cup. If you’re a regular listener to Sports Time Radio you know that Dan the Man and I both picked the Blackhawks to win the Stanley Cup at the start of the season. Maybe it was a little bit of a homer pick, but it worked in our favor. They had the parade in Chicago yesterday and there have been reports that over 2 million people attended. This of course was covered by the Chicago media from every angle. The question Dan the Man and I had last night was there was full coverage on the radio. So, my question to you would be, is this good radio?

We have two (2) fantasy baseball leagues that Mr. Fantasy, Dan the Man and I play against each other in. We did a regular snake draft style league and then for the first time we did an auction draft. Our leagues differ from most though. We have 20 teams in our leagues and the outfield is position specific. One of the players in our regular league sent out a message saying he was looking for a centerfielder. I just happen to have three (3) players who qualify as centerfielders, so I thought maybe we could make a trade. I sent him an e-mail and asked him to make me an offer. His reply was that he’s not good at making offers and in return wanted me to come up with a trade. I sent him a two (2) for two (2) trade offer which he turned down, so I countered with a regular one (1) for one (1) trade. He rejected this trade offer as well and I’m running out of ideas for trades.

The NBA had their draft this week as well and with the #1 pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Anthony Bennett a forward from UNLV. This was a bit of a surprise pick as most experts had the Cavaliers taking Kentucky center Nerlens Noel. There was also some late talk about Maryland center Alex Len. In the end the Cavaliers selected Bennett as both Noel and Len slide down in the 1st round. As with any draft you never really know what you’re getting at the start, but most experts have been calling this a weak draft. We should start to find out about these draft picks as summer league will be starting very soon.

We tried something for picking the baseball all-star teams with Sports Time Radio. I actually have it totaled up and I’ll be posting it for you very soon.
